Evan Wolfson Schools Tony Perkins on 'Face the Nation': 'Gay People are not Going to Use Up the Marriage Licenses' — VIDEO

Facethenation

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo, Family Research Council's Tony Perkins, Freedom to Marry's Evan Wolfson, Daily Beast journalist David Frum, and Alliance Defending Freedom's Austin Nimocks participated in a roundtable this morning on Face the Nation to discuss the upcoming arguments at the Supreme Court and the rising support for marriage equality in the nation.

WolfsonEvan Wolfson delivered this sizzler:

"Marriage is not defined by who is denied it. When gay people share in the freedom to marry, it doesn't change your marriage, it doesn't change Tony Perkins' marriage. My marriage is my marriage. And it means that I'm able to share in the same aspirations of commitment and love and support and dedication and connectedness, and that my parents are able to dance at our wedding. And our familiy and friends are able to support and celebrate and hold us accountable for the commitment we've made to one another. That takes nothing away from anyone else...

...The gay people are not going to use up all the marriage licenses when we enter marriage. And this is not just somebody saying it. We now have nine states including the District of Columbia, fourteen countries on four continents in which gay people share in the freedom to marry and the result is families are helped and no one is hurt."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. Perkins & Numocks realize they are losing and it's only going to get worse for their side. Their game plan now is to stall. Delay marriage equality nationwide for as long as possible.

    When the Court decides banning marriage violate the equal protection clause, they will/must strike down all of the marriage bans. The protections guaranteed by the US Constitution do not stop at state lines and wait for a majority of the voters of each state to approve.

    There will always be a group of states (mostly southern) that will never permit marriage equality by legislative action or voter referendum. The Court must strike down ALL state bans against marriage.
